D-123 What's Your vision?

"...the focus we hold in our minds affects what we perceive and how we perform. Focus creates new ideas and thought patterns. Even your physiology will respond to an image in your head as if it were reality."
Getting Things Done, David Allen

So what's your vision? Where's your focus?
That passage reminded me that I need to re-focus and get things done.

Today's image has nothing to do with the previous passage. My daughter was packing her bags and when I saw her uniforms neatly stacked up and her worn boots, it touched me. She's been activated state side and will be leaving us and her daughter for a year.

Very thought provoking questions...but my brain is beyond thought, so I'll be back tomorrow to comment on that.

Great photos! Awesome light, and such a story in them! I'm so thankful for and proud of S for what she's doing.

I like the photos that tells a story and these are wonderful shots.

I like the lighting too.

I like the black back ground in these photos. I think it enhances the colors of the boots and the uniform.

Happy Mothers Day!

Thank you for the advise on the camera. I should try setting it to Auto or Program mode when the lighting is that way.

the worn boots make this really personal and the bottom photo with more negative space is really effective

I like that shots! Telling stories and makes you think.
Good light

About vision, I do not know, all my efforts usually go to teach myself to leave and feel the current momentum. The more I do it the better I feel and do in my life ))
